As a first time dog owner I found out the hard way that there is nothing scarier than losing your pet. A few weeks ago my five month old English bulldog puppy, Ralph, walked out my front door when I was not at home. Losing your pet in Baltimore City, as you can imagine, is probably one of the most dangerous places for your dog to be wandering around. My immediate thoughts turned to tragedy as after relentless searching, my efforts came up short. The only thing I could do was hope that a responsible individual would pick him up and contact me. That is until I found Dogs Finding Dogs while posting notices on the internet. The comfort of having Anne and Heidi search for Ralph was immeasurable. Sure enough Heidi retraced Ralph’s footsteps to the exact spot where he was picked up just earlier. In a fortunate twist of fate, Ralph ended up about three blocks away at a neighbor’s friend’s house. Having Anne and Heidi by my side throughout the process truly gave me comfort in knowing that I was doing everything in my power to find my dog. If you are reading this, I can certainly share in your pain but know that there is always hope. The faster Dogs Finding Dogs can get to your house, the better chance you will have of a successful find!
